Would it surprise you he’s Republican?
Would it surprise you he’s the only black Senator at this time?
Noticeably absent from the speaker line-up at the Let Freedom Ring event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington today: the nation’s only black Senator, Tim Scott.
African-American leaders who did receive an invitation to speak at included Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) – who participated in the original March – Martin Luther King III, MSNBC host Al Sharpton and movie stars Jamie Foxx, Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.
Senator Scott likely would have been invited, if those putting this thing together gave a damn about MLK’s legacy or his dream. What a joke!
